Rudyard Kipling first published Just So Stories in 1902, and it has become one of his most enduring works. It’s a timeless collection of whimsical tales that explain how the world came to be the way it is. Popular favorites include “How the Rhinoceros Got His Skin,” “How the Leopard Got His Spots,” and “The Cat Who Walked By Himself.” Now, Oak Meadow presents a special slim edition of these tales, for use as part of the Second Grade Language Arts curriculum. Assigned during the third trimester, Just So Stories provides excellent practice for the developing reader. This volume is included in the Oak Meadow Second Grade curriculum package.
